I hear the drizzle of the rain in Phuket
As I said a few days ago... "there might be a chance of an evening thunderstorm"... And so, falleth the rain. Actually last night I did not see any rain, but I was told there was some in the north of the island in the early evening, and later in Karon Beach too. These showers and thunderstorms are normally very isolated, so I missed the rain. Today has been cooler, sunny most of the morning, getting cloudier and rained on cue just before 7pm, which is when I leave work... which used to be an issue as I was riding my trusty Honda Wave to work every day. But today I said "HA!" to Mother Nature and drove home in my Toyota Vigo, which has been nicknamed Optimus Prime. It's a much cooler evening tonight. Maybe a no aircon night? (I admit to being an aircon lover, as my electric bill can testify).
Tomorrow might be a tad wet too, according to a) my experience of the weather in Phuket, and b) the excellent Windguru forecast. After that, back to toasting on the beach, who-opened-the-oven-door weather.

Like a memory it falls
I used to play this song on the guitar pretty well. Must get me a guitar again sometime. I gaze beyond the rain drenched streets to England where my heart lies.
There's a local fair going on in Kathu village near our house. But they always have these fairs on rainy days. You need a good pair of wellies to visit this evening! No rain now, but the ground is certainly heavy under foot! I hope to get to the fair sometime this week, so I am hoping for dry days after tomorrow... If you just got to Phuket today, don't worry, you will get a sunburn by weeks end.
